Japanese Silver-Painted Athyrium niponicum var. pictum Fern Plant
Hardy and tough, yet with an airy weeping habit that looks so delicate!
Easy to grow, this fern needs only moist, well-drained, acidic soil. Over time it forms substantial colonies, increasing the color show with each passing year! And although its weeping habit makes it look very delicate, it's one tough customer, withstanding poor weather and soil conditions beautifully.
Space these plants about 18 inches apart in full to partial shade.
